Drop by the Career Center between 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. to discuss the internship program, and the application process with a representative from Eskenazi Health.
The Fehribach Center hosts an internship program for Indiana college students with physical disabilities (mobility, orthopedic, visual, & hearing) in which students are placed in a full-time, paid internship in a position that correlates with their academic major. Internships are very important in preparing college students for employment after graduation, and this is especially true for students with disabilities.
To this point, 131 students from 35 colleges have completed a total of 243 internships, with 52 students from 26 colleges interning in the summer of 2021. While Eskenazi Health has hosted the great majority of interns, 23 other employers such as Eli Lilly, Ice Miller, BraunAbility, the State of Indiana, the Indianapolis Children’s Museum, and Christel House International have hosted interns facilitated through the program. In addition to the internship, housing and transportation assistance is provided as needed, and professional development opportunities are offered for Fehribach Center interns. Internships are available for students who just finished their freshman year of college up to graduates within the last calendar year, and internships can be provided for nearly all academic majors.
